25 Mar Switcher Studio turns your iPad into a live video editing studio
While improvements in camera-phone technology have led to our mobile devices slowly but surely replacing clunky single-purpose cameras, most heavy editing and production still has to be done on desktops. This is especially true for live video, which often requires a full mixing board and production studio.
Enter Switcher Studio, a mobile production suite that lets you use an iDevice for live video mixing and production.
In its most basic form, Switcher Studio lets you record HD video from the built-in camera on your iDevice, which can either be recorded and edited, or streamed live directly to sites like YouTube, Ustream, and Twitch.
But, the magic happens when you enter Director Mode. This is when you disable video recording on your main mixing device (probably an iPad), and wirelessly connect up to 4 other iOS devices, all which can be used as video sources.
